Coronavirus (COVID-19) – An update from our Headteacher (30th March)

Dear Parents/Carers,

I hope you and your families are all well and keeping safe at home. I thought I would share with you some updates within our Nursery and to just say hello!

We are currently offering child care to a small number of children whose families are working under the “key worker” list. Our dedicated staff team are working via a rota of working from home and coming into Nursery to try and protect themselves and of course, their families too. I am very grateful for a wonderful staff team and our families/communities understanding during this difficult time.

Many of our staff are having to self-isolate so are working only from home. This includes our admin team who are still picking up emails from the Nursery every day. So please, if you have any questions, queries, worries or would just like to keep in touch please do email. As you may be aware, we are unable to answer any telephone calls. Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for understanding.

We will continue to keep in touch by uploading information, stories, songs and home activities via our website and our Facebook page. We have our new YouTube channel where we are uploading our videos created by our staff team, we aim to upload at least once per day. You can view them via our Facebook or directly on our YouTube channel. Please be reassured all of our staff are in contact with each other every day and we regularly share ideas on activities and tips that we can forward on to our families.

As always, our main priority is to keep our staff, children and community safe during times like this. We would like to share some advice and tips on how to stay well: 

  • Please stay at home. Only leave the house if: you are going to the supermarket for basic necessities, one form of exercise a day, any medical needs or travelling to or from work.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water as often as possible, especially on return from going out.
  • Cover your mouth when you sneeze or cough.
  • Do not touch your mouth, face or nose if your hands are not clean.

We will be in contact with you as soon as we can if we learn anything new or receive any updates. I hope you and your families stay safe and well and we will hopefully we see you soon.

Kind regards,

Mandy Collier-King
